    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    Justin: If you're looking for one of the most popular and one of the most affordable strut tower options for your stock intake manifold S197 GT or V6, well then the SR Performance Strut Tower Brace in black here might just be worth a look. The SR option is gonna combine aircraft-grade 4130 chromoly steel with a textured black powder coat for right around that $150 price point. While these simple four-bolt installation, will get a one out of three wrenches on your difficulty meter here, with more to come on that later in the video. So, a strut tower brace like this is one of those easy and affordable ways to make a subtle impact on your S197's handling. Helping to stiffen up the front and a little bit more, take some of the roll out of the car when cornering very hard.Now, I do say subtle because in the grand spectrum of handling parts, I would argue there will be other mods out there that will make a bigger impact to improving your handling such as sway bars, springs, and, of course, tires. But 99% of the time, a strut tower brace like this will be far more affordable and far easier to install than all of those other modifications I've just listed. But going back to the construction, I do wanna point out that SR has incorporated that aircraft-grade 4130 chromoly steel for the overall build here including the one-inch tubular parallel beam design and all finished in that textured black powder coat which looks great and low key under the hood. Now, if you don't prefer low key or anything like that, you want something that's certainly gonna pop a little bit more, SR does also offer a chrome variant of the same exact strut bar for a few bucks more. That, of course, you can find right here on the site.Now, in addition to your different finish options, another thing I believe is really cool with the SR option, maybe not cool right now, but is this blank plate section. If you go on the customer image section of the product page, you'll notice owners have customized this particular area in a number of different ways through maybe paint, different emblems, things like that. So, it kind of gives you an opportunity to customize your under hood or engine bay area a little bit more with the SR option. But, as we did point out at the very top of this video, guys, this particular strut tower brace will not clear those taller intake manifolds such as your Boss 302 or Cobra Jet or maybe even a positive displacement supercharger without modification. Sure, you can get crazy, add spacers, things like that but as it's meant to be installed, it will not clear those taller options.Now, if you do have something like that installed, you might need to look into some different options here on the site, maybe from BMR or even the Boss 302 option from Ford Performance. Now, with all that covered, let's quickly get into the installation with SR Performance option. And again, easy four-bolt install per side, so eight altogether for all my mathletes out there. Shouldn't take it any longer than 30 minutes to an hour depending on what you're working with. And here's my buddy, Joe to walk you through the job, in addition to giving you a quick tool breakdown.Joe: The tools used for this install were, a 3/8 impact driver and a 13-millimeter socket.So, the first step to this install is gonna be to remove the 4 strut tower nuts located on either side of the engine bay using a 13-millimeter socket. Next, you can place your strut tower brace on top of each strut tower. Next, you're gonna install the provided washers on top of the strut tower brace before you bolt it down. Now, you can just repeat this process on the other side and start tightening down your nuts.And that's gonna wrap up this review and install of the SR Performance Strut Tower Brace for your '05 to '14 Mustang. Thanks for watching. And for all things Mustang, keep it right here at americanmuscle.com.

        I am worried that it won't clear my factory hood on my 2006 GT because I had a ford racing strut tower brace and I tried to install it and my hood wouldn't close. So i just want to know if this would clear my stock hood?

        • This strut tower brace will indeed clear factory plenum covers on 2005-2014 GTs.

        Will installing this cause the tire/camber alignment to be thrown off since you need to remove the strut tower bolts?

        • Installing the SR Performance Black Strut Tower Brace will not affect the alignment of your vehicle.

        Will this fit with the new jet cobra intake manifold? I know the stock gt tower brace wont work and neither will the boss tower brace. But what about this? Cause I do not want to lose my tower brace for a manifold upgrade.

        • Within the text for the cobra jet manifold: •A new Computer Tune is required for installation. •Stock fuel rails can be reused for this application. •Nitrous oxide is not recommended for use with this manifold. •Stock and aftermarket strut tower braces designed to clear factory GT or BOSS manifolds will not fit. •Will require a custom air intake tube to mate to oval throttle body opening.

            Strut Tower

            Manufactured incorrectly. Overall length of the unit was incorrect, and so the bolt pattern did not align with the existing strut bolts. I had to extend the bolt holes 3/8" inward on all 8 holes. This allowed the bracket to fit the bolt pattern/spacing, but then the curve of the bracket did not fit the tower profiles. So I will add metal spacers to allow it to fit and bolt in place. I shouldnt have had to do all this extra work for the product to fit. But for the price, it wasnt worth the hassle of sending it back.

            Strut Tower Brace

            This is a high-qualilty item, and installation was a breeze! It took about 15 minutes or so, and NOTHING was 'in the way'. I positioned the brace, set it on, and torqued down the 8 strut bolts. I had occasion to take the Mustang up to my favorite mountain highway, and I 'wrung' her out. The difference in the front-end handling is remarkable, and the car corners FLAT without pitching or rolling. I am delighted with this improvement.

            Poor quality

            Purchased this product for my 07 V6 convertible and it did not fit. So I took it to a friend of mine that had the same year and model Mustang I have, took his strut tower off of his that he purchased last year and put the one I received on his. It did not fit. Same brand, style, just older. I put his old one on mine, and it fit. We the one I purchased and discovered that the bend/angle on one arm was off, resulting in the fit issue. I contacted AM support and they sent a new one right away, but in my conversation with them, I asked if they could do a quality check to make sure the specs were correct and I was told that they cannot do that. I received the second strut tower brace and same issue as first, wrong angle on arm meant that it misses the bolts by 1/2". Sent that back and received another (last one) and that had the same issue. I get it if you have one bad part, but to get sent a bad part 3 times in a row tells you that there are no quality checks done by the seller or vendor of the SR products. I really wanted this for my car, but it turned out to be a waste of time. The customer support person (Ali) did a great job and was really helpful, but there is only so much they can do and it really comes down to poor quality of the product being sold. I will not buy anything with the SR brand because I cannot trust it. Sure, I get my money back on the return, but the time and enthusiasm of using a product from SR that looks good is gone, at least for my year and model mustang (2007 V6). I don't know if some of these other V6 owners with great reviews are real or just fake to sell a product, but for the two cars it was tested on, quality has really slipped on this product. I went to a different seller and purchased a version that looks similar, but actually fits this time.

            bang for buck

            Does Not fit the best as the ridges that its supposed to line up with on the strut tower are not aligned well. But it's cheap and it does its job. Eliminates vagueness in the front end and makes steering more of a point and shoot kind of deal. Especially if you're running stickier tires and coilovers, suspension mods, etc/
